The Brindley party
We hope to be back soon
Would stay again, great vacation
Carol was a delight from the beginning. She responded to all my questions in a timely manner and even accommodated a couple special request. She was prompt in meeting us at the apartment. The apartment was in a great location to lido and Funchal, within walking distance 15-35 min or so. A lot of hills and walking but manageable. The place was comfortable and spacious. The showers always had warm water with lots of volume. Washing machine was a bit challenging to operate but we finally managed. My husband found a manual on line. Smaller Balcony had a decent view with a cute comfortable chair/table. Nice to enjoy a cup of coffee/wine. Great bakery with friendly service, quick walk up the road. Secure apartment. Some paper towels or napkins would have been helpful. Not many outlets but we managed. The bed seemed a little small to us for a queen, but I do believe Carol included the dimensions. We are a little taller than average size 6+ft/5.8ft and sleep in a king bed at home and found we needed to sleep in separate beds a few nights to get better sleep. The extra bedrooms were a plus, as well as the bathroom. The kitchen facilities all worked well. Plenty of bath and kitchen towels. Iron, hairdryer all worked well. Overall a great vacation! Would stay again
Fabulous spacious 3 bedroom apartment within walking distance of sea and local shops
We stayed here in July for one week and will definitely be back! Spacious apartment with absolutely everything you need including towels, hairdryer, 2 bathrooms, iron, washer, microwave, oven, fridge freezer, balcony, dining table, two large settees (one turns into a bed) great tv with excellent WiFi coverage, books for reading, tourist information leaflets, I could go on and on! Leaving the apartment turn left and walk 500 yards to an excellent bakery open very early until late evening for delicious patisseries and coffee. The street below again five minutes away has many restaurants and coffee shops, booking office for day trips and a fully stocked reasonably priced supermarket for all your self catering food. Three streets away are more restaurants and the fantastic lido area with pools and access to the beautiful sea. 5 Euro’s for adults 1.80 for youths you will spend the day there! Next to that are water sports and a large supermarket and taxis. Funchal is just a 30 min leisurely walk to the marina , another Lido, the fantastic market, shops , restaurants, cable car up to Monte, boat trips etc. There are many buses but a taxi costs only around 6-8 Euro’s and they are on a meter so you are confident you will pay the correct price should you not want to walk back. Safari trip cost 40 euro adult 20 Euro youth, I would recommend this to the west for a full day tour of the island through the villages and mountains to Porto Moniz where you can spend an hour or two in the natural rock pools, I would not recommend taking lunch as the time is best spent in the pools. Coming out of the apartment and turn right you can walk for 10 mins to The Forum, a shopping centre with Mcdonald’s etc, cinema and three floors of shops such as H & M etc. This apartment is in the perfect location for the main attractions of Funchal and surrounding areas. It is on a hill so recommend taking the streets to walk along and wind down rather than the steep shortcut through the hotels. Carol met us at the apartment and explained everything to us , gave us some recommendations and her number so was available should we need anything. It is peaceful but close enough to the hustle and bustle should you prefer. The locals are welcoming and all speak very good English. The apartment is bright and clean with plenty of room for a family of 6 to be comfortable in. Thank you Carol and we will certainly see you again.
Spoilt with noise from building site
Cath is delightful to deal with. Sadly sometimes things are out of her control. There is large scale building works next door 8am-8pm 6 days per week. The only peaceful day is Sunday. If we had known the severity of the work we wouldn’t have gone The apartment is value for money in terms of size. However we couldn’t work the dishwasher and often failed the TV ! The owners (not Cath) Could do with spending a small amount of money eg new bathroom bins. New mugs and update the linen. This property is not your usual apartment block for holiday let’s it is in a residential apartment block that includes being kept awake until 3 am by a party and a loud noisy motorcycle arriving and leaving at various times of the day and night. Good news. It does have a seaview and is on a bus route. It is too noisy to sit on the balcony. I am sorry to leave such. Negative review as Cath is delightful
We had a fantastic week stay.......The apartment was very clean and in a perfect location to visit Funchal and the Lido area......There is a bus stop right outside the apartment and the bus service runs regularly. It takes less than 10 minutes to reach the centre of Funchal. Cath and Gorge are very friendly and really looked after us during our stay and took us on a delightful trip around the island. I would definitely recommend the apartment and would definitely return again. Madeira is a beautiful island with spectacular views and the people are very friendly wherever you go....
Great apartment and great location with easy access to funchal centre and lots of other locations. Lots of places to eat and drink including a top rated restaurant on the same road and amazing bakery minutes walk. Lots to see and do.
Great communication with Cath who arranged all our airport transfers.
This apartment complex (Hab d'Ajuda) off Estrada Monumental, enjoys a central location in the heart of the Lido; a well-known area in Funchal where you will find some of the best restaurants and bars in Madeira. This is a pleasant private residential block. It is ideal for families and young visitors who are looking for pleasant and comfortable accommodation with excellent standards of quality and service. There are extensive leisure areas with swimming pools offering stunning views over the coastal strip of the Lido area.
